In survival situations, food is as important as water, fire, and shelter. You should make it one of your top priorities.
Some food products last few hours, others a few days or a few weeks or a few months. But there are some food products which can be stored indefinitely! Survival and prepping are all about making the right choices. Here we will share with you how to make the correct choice about the food items.
Honey is known for its health benefits. It can cure a lot of diseases and can be used on wounds and injuries too. But the best thing about honey from a prepper’s perspective is that it can stay fresh for centuries. Sometimes it crystallizes, but if you place the honey jar in warm water, the crystals dissolve.
Another food that is ideal for a survivalist or prepper is rice. Rice has been found preserved in ancient Egyptians tombs (honey, too!). White rice is a better option as compared to brown rice. Vanilla extract is another food item that will stay fresh and flavorful forever. It is made from Vanilla beans and can also be used for treating burns and wounds.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
